B-b-but it's TOO SOON to talk about gun control! Besides, we're still busy figuring out how to ban more books and criminalize women's reproductive health. Lessgo Bwandun!

There is no threshold. So long as the rubles keep filling the NRA coffers, the GOP will keep covering for them. Daddy vladdy's checks never bounce

That's really not fair. If the school shooters were consistently black it would only take like 1/2 the number of dead kids.
 
2022-05-16 10:19:20 PM  
Impossible. I've been assured in previous threads it's racist to white people to point out that replacement theory has only become a mainstream political topic in today's society among one segment of people, and that I'm a disturbed bigot for not seeing both sides as bad here. BLM wants cops to stop murdering black people for christ sakes!

She's a strong contender for the first major GOP politician ("major" here meaning national name recognition, despite being a state senator) to simply openly campaign on fascism or just call for it directly.  Not even the pretense of code words or deniability.  Flat-out, something like "we've tried democracy and it doesn't work. [insert whargarble about Democrats].  That's why we're in favor of making the US formally a GOP-only country by law. Strength now for freedom tomorrow!"or some doublespeak bullsh*t like that.  It's coming.

So what you're saying is we should shoot nazis in their center of mass so that we don't risk a non-well regulated grouping?
 
2022-05-16 10:24:22 PM  
His Gun  Safety  3.0  bill is mostly nonsense.

Banning.50 firearms: Is that  a huge problem? The guns are expensive  and I haven't heard of many light armored vehicles being destroyed

Closing Loophole for Importing Out-of-State Firearms:  I  guess the intent is  to  stop people  moving  to New Jersey with guns   that aren't legal in New Jersey? Well I guess  if somebody murders someone with an illegal  gun that's one more charge you can add.

Establishing Electronic Ammunition Sales Recordkeeping: We  have that here. It tells you that somebody  bought  ammo. This is crucial information because nobody would buy ammo unless they were going  to murder someone!!!! Or shoot  holes in paper or go hunting...  but mostly  it is  all for MURDER!!!!

Promoting Microstamping Technology:  Wishful thinking.

Regulating School Shooting Drills:  Sad and doesn't seem needed if  his utopian gun policy comes into force.

Holding the Gun Industry Accountable:  As always it is the fault  of  the gun industry that people shoot other people.

In New Jersey, almost 80% of guns used in crimes are originally purchased outside of the state.  However, the gun industry has failed to take any steps to stem the flow of guns to the illegal market through gun shows, flea markets, straw purchasers, and theft.  The Governor proposes amending the state's public nuisance laws to prohibit the gun industry from endangering the safety or health of the public through its sale, manufacturing, importing, or marketing of guns.

I think he's proposing stopping the sale of guns in New Jersey because people can buy guns from flea markets and out of state? I don't really follow this at all.

Requiring Firearm Safety Training:  Nobody should object to this one.
Mandating Safe Storage of Firearms: Also a good idea  but likely  to get  pushback from  the  people  that  think they can go from fully asleep to John Wick in seconds.


Nothing on his list would stop a mass shooting whatsoever unless the theoretical shooter was going to buy a .50 rifle  from a  flea market and his ammo purchase was flagged.

So you're saying that someone mass-murdering a bunch of rich people would fix this? It's certainly a logically consistent argument.

If they are part of a violent group then sure. If you're just calling all liberals communist then absolutely not.

Colour_out_of_Space: [Fark user image 366x534]


it seems like arguing semantics and grammar about the 2A is some kind of hobby, but is absolutely asininely pointless.

Presser v. Illinois 1886 The supreme court codified the idea of private gun ownership as a right. This "right" did not exist starting at the creation of the 2A.

In a nutshell:
"The court ruled the Second Amendment right was a right of individuals, not militias, and was not a right to form or belong to a militia, but related to an individual right to bear arms for the good of the United States, who could serve as members of a militia upon being called up by the Government in time of collective need."

Absolutely I would agree this reading is wrong, but as we've recently found, depending on the supreme court to do the right thing for what should be codified clearly in law, is not great fun.

The_Sponge: Can we add communists and jihadists to that list?


So we're adding abrahamic religions including Christianity, Judaeism, and Islam to the list to prevent them from owning firearms?

I'm completely okay with this. Especially if it keeps Christian Nationalists from owning firearms, since religious motivated mass shootings in the US since 2000 have overwhelmingly been them, not "Islamic Jihadists (I believe its around 10).

Also which communist group has committed a mass murder? Because plenty of far right groups seem to have already demonstrated their unfitness to be trusted with firearms.

Let's give EVERYONE, who van legally possess a firearm, a .223 Wylde barrel AR firearm with 1000 rounds of green tip ammo. We'll start in ge cities to get the most guns in the most hands as soon as possible. At the same time, in line with the 2nd amendment, it will be federal law that all publicly owned land / buildings are open carry zones, state Capitol or city hall.

Also institute a 10 cent per round tax on all ammo. That will be used to turn every school into an armed camp per the NRA suggestions. After all, rights cost money sometimes, gun owners can pay to update schools.

An armed society is a polite society, or so the NRA claims.

This. Unless places like CPAC or various gatherings of the ultra-wealthy start getting shot up*, not a damn thing will change. At least as long as "conservatives" have even a scrap of power to block said change, anyway.
